“The most important thing about art is to work. Nothing else matters except sitting down every day and trying.”
.
“Fear doesn't go away. The warrior and the artist live by the same code of necessity, which dictates that the battle must be fought anew every day.”
.
“It’s better to be in the arena, getting stomped by the bull, than to be up in the stands or out in the parking lot.”
.
This book was an incredible life saver for me, one that helped me recognize Resistance for what it was (ever want to clean your emails or scrub your toilet instead of doing your creative work?), look it in the face, and do my work anyway. I became much more productive and that is the only way to hone our craft - by working.
.
I found the PDF online for you creative warriors 🌟💪💛

1st of 2 #screenprinting workshops at @meshmashproject today, designing our #screenprints for next time. But when I got there, I discovered these awesome bags the good folk at Mesh Masg designed and screenprinted based off #badges I made during the #activismworkshop from last year! Swipe to see the bags, which are all available from the Mesh Mash website, link in their profile! #Craftivism #creativeresistance #craftivist #activist #activism #troublebrewing

The second highest category of debt in the U.S. is student debt - that must be why it’s such a memorable day when you make your last payment.  Watch this week’s #actionstowithstand to see how I celebrated my last payment and why the PROSPER Act could make that day a lot harder to get to for future students.

“Not only was I handcuffed shackled the whole nine or whatever with the baby, when he’s hungry or anything, I would literally have to hold him with handcuffs and shackles and feed him." – Stephanie (slide 2)

#UnbrokenByBars is a public art and storytelling project that brings the love previously incarcerated mothers of color share with their children out from behind the bars and into public space. It was created by #artivist @jessxsnow with @amplifierart / @raceandrevolution. •

•
On July 11th, the #DignityForIncarceratedWomenAct was introduced, which seeks to reform how we treat incarcerated women. Our prison system preys upon women who have been traumatized and instead of offering healing or rehabilitation, the presence of male guards in sensitive locations like restrooms and showers re-traumatizes incarcerated women - the vast majority of whom are survivors of sexual or physical abuse. This growing segment of our prison population is often left out of conversations around criminal justice reform, but deserves our attention. •

We all feel the overwhelming urge to avoid our creative tasks. What seperates the pros from the amateurs is the ability to recognise creative resistance and push on with the work regardless of how it feels.
-
What usually makes us avoid a creative and energy absorbing task is the time we think it will take to complete it. But in reality, the time will pass whether you do the work or not.
-
I know i’d rather be one step closer to my goals than resting peacefully in my comfort zone when the time inevitably does fade into the past. And that’s the thought I always keep front of mind when trying to push through creative resistance.

Over the weekend I saw the final draft of my finished #CreativeResistanceBook being published by @mangopublishing in about a month. The designer has done such a beautiful job and I'm so excited about all of it, but this project particually stopped me in my tracks. Gazing upon this open page and realising I get to share one of my oldest craft obsessions, the tailor swatch #waggaquilt, with the world and with another generation, just gave me all the feels. I can't wait for you to see this book in all it's glory, and I can't wait to see what you make with it. You can still preorder it on Amazon, using the link in my profile, or keep an eye out in bookstores near you!

I'm a huge fan of @athenabright. Athena turned protest upside down all across the country, bringing light to spaces that would otherwise go ignored. So much so that places like the Smithsonian and other institutions are knocking on her door to aquire iconic pieces that helped define #NoMuslimBan #BlackLivesMatter #Occupy and so much more. So I was totally fanboying when Athena agreed to join our #org20 panel. I still am as you can see. #creativeresistance #politicalart #lightbrigade #1u

" #GlobalWomenHeroes mural strives to educate on women's rights and mass incarceration. Designed by 25 incarcerated young women on Rikers Island, they learned about several global women's rights movements and practiced different art techniques to create portraits of Global Women Heroes who have taken a stand for women's rights.

《The more people have time to experience the joys of creativity, the less they will be consumers, especially of mass-produced culture. I see that as a kind of new wealth that counts for more than owning material things. I also see art as something people will do rather than consume, and do it as a natural part of their lives; creative endeavors are a form of profound spiritual satisfaction.》

Work In Progress - #GlobalWomenHeroes Mural strives to educate on women's rights and mass incarceration. Designed by 25 incarcerated young women on Rikers Island, they learned about several global women's rights movements and practiced different art techniques to create portraits of "Global Women Heroes" who have taken a stand for women's rights. We are excited to have Maxine Greene High School students plan and paint this mural; as part of our program with them, they've learned more about each Global Woman Hero, women's rights, and women in prison. While this mural portrays #womenbreakingbarriers, its process and (soon to be) finished product serve as a symbol for youth to use their knowledge of human rights and artivism to lead grassroots change. •

Ogba is home to @bantucrew it's where we compose, write & rehearse. But for some odd reason we have never performed there. The lack of a proper concert venue has not helped matters but we are about to change the narrative by taking our music to the streets. Its our creative way of resisting the status quo #AgberosInternational  style.

//The Revolution is...Wendy “Wutäng” Francis// In a new series on my instagram, I’ll collaborate with black women in order for them to share their story, and for me to paint a narrative that isn’t just mine. Together, we can tell a wider story!
The first piece of the series is a beautiful poem by Wendy “Wutäng” Francis - @goodgirlsriot called “I too break”. I first meet Wendy at an event in late August 2016. It was my first time exhibiting my art and Wendy was one of the speakers. Her poem about how black men were non-existent in the fight about issues that target black women, blew my mind. Since then, I’ve admired her work and her activism. To say she is an inspiration is the understatement of the year. Her words are what changes are made of. You can read her poem “I too break” in the second slide. On www.goodgirlsriot.com/ you can read more about her. While you’re at it, please listen to her being prime minister for on day on @statsministerforendag 
If you are a black woman and you want to share a story, poem or perspective and allow me to paint you, DM me or leave a comment here ❤️ original photo: @edinida

Part 4 - DEAR MAMA// We’ve arrived to the final part of this story in which I’ve told you about my mother’s first time as an immigrant in Sweden. I’ve told you about how watching a parent, a safe zone, defend herself against strangers has left me reaching for perfection all my life. I’ve told you about how moments like on that bus has left me feeling helpless and angry. I’ve told you about how racism sometimes happens in the stitching, not the actual fabric. 
Now, let me tell you how proud I am of my mama.

I’ll be the first one to admit that I wasn’t always fair to my mother when I was younger. My dad wasn’t with us in Sweden so she had to take on both roles because I insisted that a child should have both parents. She did the best she could with very little and I failed to see the value in that. She took care of extended family, neighbors, friends and everyone else but herself. 
I will never be able to show her my fullest gratitude, however hard I try but the older I get, the more I understand the world, the better I understand her. And knowing that she’s a survivor will be enough for now. 
We’ve disappointed each other over the years, fueled by the fact that we are two very different individuals. She’s an extrovert who offers herself up to the world as a resource. I’m more closed, go about my day in a skeptical manner. She wants me to be more open and I want her to be more closed as to not allow people to feast on her love. One of her greatest tragedies in life is that I’m not as religious as her. One of my greatest tragedies is that she doesn’t see how much I believe, but not in the same thing she believes. I believe in her. I believe in activism. I believe in making the world better for the next generation - just like she taught me. 
From the bottom of my heart - thank you so much for allowing me to share this story with you. Thank you for all your love, for your comments and for sharing your own perspectives. (I can’t find the inspiration photo or model, please tag if you know).

Who wants to join me in setting up a craftivist group in Hamilton? I want to have a go at a different kind of activism, one that creates dialogue through creativity and a gentle form of expression rather than shouting, petitions and traditional protest. Craftivism is craft + activism. It is the “practice of engaged creativity, especially regarding political or social causes” (Betsy Greer). Fashion Revolution Week is coming up, beginning 23 April, so it makes sense that it will be the focus of our first craftivities. DM me if you are in Hamilton and keen to be a part of this. Craft skills aren’t necessary, ideas, passion and a desire for positive change is all that is required.

#Florida is one of three states whose #constitution permanently disenfranchises #citizens with past felony convictions and grants the #governor the #authority to restore voting rights. 
The Republican-dominated Legislature has fought rights restoration believing a large number of former felons would register as Democrats.

1.7 million were not allowed to vote in the 2016 US election! 
@rickscottforflorida Florida's method of granting clemency to ex-felons is #unconstitutional.

#Polypropylene #mesh - schedule 1 poisons. 
Deconstructed polypropylene rope mesh balls. I am working on representing the way that mesh reacts inside the body. So many mesh victims discover that their implants have scrunched up into balls inside their bodies. These mesh balls have been made during periods of bed rest. They also document the amount of time I spend bedbound due to mesh complications and debility.

Several of my #PropsForProtest are part of the #exhibition “Avenues of Expression: Street Traditions in Miami” at the HistoryMiami Museum. They include a #banner from the #MarchForScience, and #armband from the #WomensMarch, a #prop from the “Yes/No” series and a pair of earrings and necklace from the #JewelryFor Protest”. I didn’t get to take pictures at the opening party so I am happy to see that the #museum posted some. 
It’s a fun show that features a variety of street expressions including graffiti, stickers, bikes, storefronts, parades, #protests, etc. It will be up for a year so you’ve got plenty of time to go see it! Thank you Vanessa for including me!

Thank you Vanessa for including me! #ProtestArt  #CreativeResistance  #AvenuesOfExpression  #StreetTraditions  #305StreetTraditions  #OurStreets  #Resist  #HistoryMiamiMuseum  #Miami

We must connect the dots between climate change, water scarcity, energy shortages, global health, food security and women's empowerment.

I posted about this yesterday and then deleted it… I 100% empathize with the reasons given yet am deeply disturbed by censorship. I do not want to make this about me or the organizers, my intention on addressing this is purely from an intellectual and legal standpoint and hope to spark thought and dialogue on the first amendment. This is a loaded (pun intended) subject and this incident falls within the myriad of grays between right and wrong. I chose to compromise out of respect for the power of the cause which I feel strongly about and for the concerns of the organizer. I purposely did not enter the gathering of people at the high school and instead chose to set up on the perimeter, I chose to compromise and not carry the pieces on the march but I am now choosing to point out that it is a slippery slope to condone censorship in one situation and criticize it on another. The wellbeing of any single individual is not more important than the first amendment, if this argument was used it would lead to a dangerous constitutional precedent. I again want to emphasize that the effects on the student were a strong motivation to have made the decisions that I made.

What I am objecting to was the police department’s claim that I could not do this, while I will acknowledge that he was very civil and looking for a compromise, it was a violation of the first amendment. As an activist who has stood up to the current administration’s threat to the first amendment I feel that I need to equally voice my opinion regardless of who it comes from. Without the first amendment the nation wide march would not have happened and I feel that it is important to be vigilant and protect it. After a lot of though and heated discussion I have decided that is important to repost it despite all of the personal backlash that I am receiving!
